LaoZi Academy Podcasts

From the site:

> Audio recordings from formal training. In these recordings, Master Dong Yang talks about different aspects of Dao and Daoist cultivation through the refining and growing of the internal elixir and how to prevent physical damage in the process.

Hmmm, I think some things were not meant for podcast format.

What do you think?

  1. I dunno. I mean he could dispense his teaching only to a trusted circle of friends, a secret brotherhood of monks secluded high in the mountains. But it would only take one brother with wifi and a Twitter account to bring it all crashing down.

    He’s just being a realist.

  2. You’re right, John. Using podcasts to teach?! That’s insane!

  3. Some martial art practitioners will be interested listeners. The way is a little bit odd, but if we don’t regard it as preaching, everything gonna be OK.

  4. Alright, I have listened to Part I. hmmm… I’ll say, to me it sounds more like esoteric stuffs, religion. Not much to do with Laozi.
    Still, it’s strange that he calls himself Daoist Master. lol

  5. Hi, I’m one of his students + also read here now and then so it was a nice surprise to see the mention 🙂

    In terms of the Laozi relation, Master Dong Yang teaches the practical life-result based Daoist philosophy that many consider was the real focus of Laozi’s teachings.

    The Tao Te Ching, rather than being just a pretty compilation of eastern wisdom is seen by daoists to be a precise manual for how to live life according to the Dao and also as a guide to ‘Internal Alchemy’ the process of refining the substances of the body like blood(Jing), into energy(Qi) and then into intelligence for spiritual/mental achievement(shen).

    Don’t quote me! hard to give clear info in a couple of paragraphs 🙂 lol
